Citing Journal Artcle Without DOI by The American Psychological Association (APA) Referencing System. The APA (American Psychological Association) style requires two elements: in-text citations throughout your assignment, and a reference list at the end.
The American Psychological Association reference style uses the Author-Date format. Refer to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.) for more information. When quoting directly or indirectly from a source, the source must be acknowledged in the text by author name and year of publication.

N.B. See the Library’s APA webpage for a quotation of 40 or more words.
Indirect quotation/paraphrasing/summarising – no quotation marks 1) Professional knowledge alone does not make someone a very capable professional (Cohen & Lotan, 2014). 2) According to Cohen and Lotan (2014), professional knowledge alone does not make someone a very capable professional.
